or afghanistan and murdoch would not have tolerated it. >> when you think about -- i'm sorry about that. when you think about what one done and the depesble things that were done, do you think he made the right call of canceling it, it's done? >> it's a difficult call because as you said it's an old, historic paper, that has a great history, but has committed abuses in the past like all tabloids do, but also exposed a lot of fraud and misdeeds, most recently exposed corruption in the pakistani cricket team which was an important story. it's very sad and it's sad for the 200 people who work there, frightful for them. many of them will be given jobs in other news of murdoch's papers in london. he probably will create a new sunday paper called "the sun on sunday" to go along with his daily paper "the sun" which is another tabloid in britain. >> mr. shawcross, some were wondering, i was reading a lot of articles on this, if rupert murdoch was at all responsible, maybe in a trickled down effect, of kind of creating an atmosphere where people will be willing to do anything to get that story. who create

panetta, the former head of the cia. he's saying on his first trip to afghanistan, his first public comments, really, saying that the defeat of al-qaeda is within reach and here is what he had to say on saturday. >> we're within reach of strategicically defeating al-qaeda. if we could be successful at going after them, i think we can really undermine their ability to do any kind of planning to be able to conduct any kind of attack on this country. but that's that. that's why i think it's within reach 'cause they're going to sake some more work? you bet it is, but i think it's within reach. >> mike: in the first couple of days, is that statement too bold, that statement? >> i like it, covets. >> ainsley: i do, too. >> dave: that was supported by congress and we like his congress and david petraeus echoed that and holds the promise of a strategic defeat of al-qaeda. he is he, too, is confident if we can get more kills, 20, we would crush. >> ainsley: 10 to 20. >> mike: al-qaeda is all over the world and not just in pakistan. >> dave: they believe the head of al-qaeda is in pakistan al
